Jetstar** and Scoot** – The Brisco’s of Travel

Spoiler Alert – Scoot sale to Athens for under $700 and Jetstar to NZ for under $240 return!

It doesn’t take much research to notice budget airlines have sales every week. In fact, you’d be mad to ever pay full price on a budget airline considering how often they have sales.

Any Kiwi’s will know the saying ‘The Brisco’s of….’ but for everyone else, Brisco’s is a homewares store in New Zealand famous because they have a decent range, their prices are expensive, even by New Zealand standards, but they have a sale, every single week, often 60% off.

So with a sale, their prices become reasonable. The company that owns Brisco’s, bought out struggling sports Retailer Rebel, then surprise, almost every week, Rebel in New Zealand had a sale. You’d be mad if you bought anything from Brisco’s and paid full price

Which brings us back to Jetstar. Traveller’s who fly Jetstar are looking to save money. They love thinking they’ve nabbed a bargain. So when there’s a sale, they feel they’ve scored an even better bargain. However, like most Low Cost Carriers, by the time you add-on bags and one other extra like a meal or seat select, then you’re paying almost as much as a full service airline.

Do you think Qantas knows how much Jetstar is charging? Of course! They own both airlines remember!

Just like Singapore Airlines owns Scoot. It’s no surprise that adding all the extras on a low cost carrier end up similar than a full service carrier, they just hope you don’t notice!

I know there’s always exceptions, but Scoot, Cebu Pacific and Air Asia have similar marketing principals. Low cost carrier’s run short term promotions because budget traveller’s who are considering a destination, feel pressured to make a purchase. Even if that pressure occurs every week.

So today, Scoot announced a big sale across 40 destinations. There’s the usual, Athens for under $700 return, Singapore for under A$300 return but of course, neither of these include luggage, meals, seat select and with Singapore you need a minimum of two traveller’s. Fine for normal people but for single freaks like me, or dare I even mention, solo traveller’s, suddenly, its not such a good deal after all.

So yes it’s worth a mention because Europe for under a grand is still pretty good, but, who honestly travels to Europe without luggage? i’m genuinely curious, please contact me or better yet, send me a postcard with your packing list.

Oh and plot twist… Jetstar is having a sale on fares to New Zealand, on a Friday! I didn’t see that coming. I wonder if Hopper predicted that too?

If you want them, here’s the Scoot Deals to Athens, Singapore and Jetstar NZ flights further down.

All flights are with Scoot (a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines) and involve layovers in Singapore in both directions. Most of these are brief but some may be longer, so take the opportunity to get out of the airport and explore the city – Singapore is a great city for a layover, and Australian passport holders don’t need a Visa to visit.
Scoot is a low cost carrier, so all checked baggage and in-flight meals will be extra.
Can I use my own dates? Yes – just click the link closest to your preferred dates and then change the dates once the search has completed.
These prices won’t last long. Usually a few days but sometimes much shorter. If you click the sample dates and the prices have gone up it unfortunately means the sale has ended.

Here’s the Scoot deals for Singapore:

Travel during August – November 2019 and February/March 2020! All flights are direct, but hurry – sale ends soon.

This fare requires two or more passengers to travel/book together. Solo travellers will pay slightly extra.
